Our Approach | Puget Sound Community School PSCS students often pass through a series of stages, starting with a feeling of euphoria when they first enroll. Students are excited by the promise of spending their days pursuing activities that give them joy, and the thrill of being surrounded by an extraordinary group of teachers. For some students, this can fade into boredom. We often say that PSCS is the easiest school you’ll ever attend because no one is telling you what to do. The job of the teaching staff is to not solve a student’s boredom problem. Students then often engage passionately in the endless academic and social opportunities available, and even begin leading new activities that they create. The curriculum at PSCS is responsibility, and the goal for our graduates is maturity.
